Working for Swanage Pier Trust

Following the successful Heritage Lottery Fund round 2 application for the Trust’s regeneration project, plans are now underway. The £2.2 million project involves major restoration work to the Victorian listed structure, including the replacement of 41 Greenheart timber piles, which have been damaged following many years of adverse sea conditions and waterborne woodworm. The works should be completed by August this year. 

The project also involves refurbishing Marine Villas, a Grade II listed building on site, to provide new education, exhibition, catering and retail facilities. Architects have developed plans for an innovative glass extension to Marine Villas, which will extend the café area and enable visitors to enjoy the spectacular views of Swanage Bay and the surrounding Jurassic Coast. The expanded facilities will allow the Pier to host a range of events. The new exhibition will feature interactive displays, animations and marine life aquaria, with information about the Pier and its heritage, the history of diving and surrounding historic wreck sites, the marine environment and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. 

Exciting opportunities have now become available to join the Swanage Pier Team as we move towards the next exciting stage of development. We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced people in customer service, education, volunteer & event management.
